When a busy work­ing pro­fes­sional and her part­ner de­cided to ren­o­vate their home, their brief for the de­sign was sim­ple – to cre­ate an oa­sis of calm where they could truly un­wind and dis­con­nect from their de­mand­ing jobs. Says the home­owner, “I wanted to cre­ate a space where peo­ple could feel at ease and re­laxed when­ever they en­ter and to make the most of the nat­u­ral light.”

Hav­ing lived in the home as a ten­ant for four years be­fore de­cid­ing to make it their own, the cou­ple un­der­stood the space well and what de­ci­sions would work best for their life­style. While the de­sign – where they en­vi­sioned an un­der­stated chic aes­thetic with lux­u­ri­ous fin­ish­ings – was im­por­tant, the space also needed to be prac­ti­cal and im­ple­ment suf­fi­cient stor­age so­lu­tions. They chose their con­trac­tor, Hen­ley Con­sul­tant Ltd, be­cause they un­der­stood the im­por­tance of pro­cesses and ma­te­ri­als that ful­filled LEED cer­ti­fi­ca­tion re­quire­ments. They also worked with Liq­uid De­sign to con­ceive the over­all aes­thetic and colour pal­ette of the three-bed­room, two-bath­room abode.

The home­owner ad­mits that she is drawn to mid-cen­tury mod­ern and Scan­di­na­vian in­te­ri­ors, and this is ob­vi­ous as soon as you step into the home. Gen­er­ous light floods the space and en­velops you in vi­brant warmth, up­lift­ing the nat­u­ral wooden floors and the neu­tral pal­ette se­lected for the walls and fur­nish­ings. The works of de­sign mas­ters, in­clud­ing Arne Ja­cob­sen, Charles and Ray Eames, Fritz Hansen and Achille and Pier Gi­a­como Castiglioni, have been cho­sen for the spa­cious liv­ing area to cre­ate

這位工務繁忙的專業人士與伴侶決定翻新家居時,二人的設計大要非常簡單——打造出城市綠洲,讓兩位主人家能安享其中,暫時逃離繁重工事。屋主表示:「我想打造出一個讓人隨時前來也能感自在放鬆的家居,並能善用單位盡享的天然光線。」

伴侶租住單位四年後最終決定購下物業,當然對空間認識甚深,更清楚了解怎樣的安排才最適合自己的生活方式。二人預視的低調豪華美學最為重要,故需要為單位打造實用有效的儲物方案。屋主們跟承建商Hen­ley Con­sul­tant Lt­d通力合作,對方更備受推崇,深明過程進度的重要性,所用物料更能符合LEED評分機制。另外,也跟Liq­uid De­sign合作構思整體設計和色彩運用,為這三房、兩浴室的家居想出美學方向。

屋主喜愛中世紀現代與北歐室內裝潢,如此喜好當你走進其住所一刻即能體現。取之不盡的天然光傾瀉而來,做就出一處暖意處處的天地,並以天然木地板、牆身和裝飾的中色組合結集而成。設計大師如Arne Ja­cob­sen、Charles和Ray Eames、Fritz Hansen、Achille和Pier Gi­a­como Castiglion­i等人的作品均獲精選,並放到這開揚寬敞的生活空間裡去,締造出豪華而舒適的氣氛,而Eero Saari­nen的Tulip桌和椅就成了飯廳的時尚焦點。走在潮流之先的咖啡桌書籍、雕塑、裝飾品和綠色美景與傢具互相輝映,展現出屋主的獨特品味和愛好。她表示,連卡佛、colourliv­ing和Ligne Roset是自己最愛在香港搜購家品和裝飾的最佳地點。
